Canine Misplaced for 5 Days Reunited With Household After Cliff Rescue – NBC Connecticut

A Seymour dog, missing for five days, was reunited with his family after being rescued from a cliff by rescue workers.

According to the Great Hill Hose Company, the dog Charlie was spotted on a ledge on Roosevelt Drive at around 10:20 a.m. Tuesday.

Several groups responded to try to help the stranded pup, including a Hamden technical rope rescue team and alligators raised by crews at Oxford.

A Hamden firefighter went over the edge to rescue Charlie, who was secured with ropes. Then it was lowered and released into the hands of its eager owners and a veterinarian for a health check. It took about four hours to complete the rescue.
